A. Conventional IFR flight from a towered airport to another
A normal IFR flight with conventional enroute planning.
B. IFR flight from an untowered airport to another
Here I fly IFR from and to an airport without any tower controllers.
C. IFR flight from a towered airport to another using TEC routing
My first IFR flight from one towered airport to the next. I learn about the use of TEC routes.
D. Picking up and closing IFR enroute
I like to learn how to pick up IFR during any VFR flight, in case I may unexpectedly run into IMC.
E. Lost communication procedures
What should I do when my radios fail in IMC? I like to be ready when Keith jumps aboard and messes me up ;)
